A plant that we usually do not dare to touch becomes the main protagonist of Cartier’s fine jewellery collection, Cactus de Cartier. A plant that we can wear as sculptural pieces that reveal a new take on a traditional source of inspiration, Nature and its powerful Beauty. Perfect for summer.
With this collection, the Maison Cartier has been able to treat the cactus’ spines and make them soft, revealing their fascination in jewels that are characterized by defined geometry, cut-outs and graceful proportions. A rock take on a natural element.
Diamonds, lapis lazuli, emeralds, carnelians, chrysoprases compose a wild bouquet of unexpected facets. And the yellow gold brings in the solar energy and the warmth of summertime.
A little bit of design history
The floral theme is not new to Cartier, who has always used it in a very original and colourful way. Jean Cocteau used to say: “unreal reality”, and this is what defines Cartier when it comes to depicting Nature in jewels – flowers that seems almost real and yet so otherworldly.
The symbolic beauty of a flower becomes, with Cartier, a symbol of today’s charismatic woman, wearing jewels that are utterly beautiful and endowed with a strong yet extremely feminine personality. CC
